Upheaval by LAlight Upheaval by LAlight
Drainage from coke ovens and mining activity has forever stained the rocks of the North Fork Blackwater River. It also smells terrible. :(
But it's one of the most beautiful waterfalls in West Virginia, a favorite of many locals. I love coming back here time after time to shoot the river and falls in different light, seasons, and weather. :)

Lovely, I adore how smooth the water is. What colour do you think the rocks would be, if they hadn't been stained?

I would assume that they'd be somewhere between a gray and sand color. Most of the rock around here is sandstone. :)

Mmhmm..i'm sure that's why you didn't reply...:poke:
Was pretty happy with the way the foreground turned out, just wish I could move the falls to a different location! Did you shoot from this little perch or not? Can't remember...also, was the first time I've gone down onto that perch because the rocks were always too slimy before! :|
Thanks so much for the amazing words, hon...means the world to me! :smooch:
